I’m outside my comfort zone! I started my business to help people and selling and marketing make me uncomfortable.
BUT... I can’t help people who don’t know what I am doing or offering.
So here goes.
I am promoting my special online course ‘Escape from Anxiety” and there is a video below explaining this some more and I will send more over the next few days.
Over the next week to 10 days, because I am promoting my online course, I will send a few extra emails with videos embedded. Please forward them to others who may from them helpful.
Yes, I need to sell to make a living but remember my main purpose is to be helpful.
South Australia is opening its borders and with thousands of people in the eastern states being positive to covid we are bound to have cases here. As an older person I do need to take care while I continue to run my business and specially to help people who suffer from anxiety.
I’ve made some changes. Please only book online if you are not fully vaccinated, we can use zoom. I don't like mandatory vaccination, but I have promised my daughters that I will ask unvaccinated people to use zoom, which does work very effectively so long as you wear headphones and if you are using a Phone, please anchor it so that it doesn't fall off your lap leaving my hypnotising the ceiling
Have you ever been to the rain forest in Queensland and seen a strangler fig?
A bird drops a fig seed into the top of a tree and the fig starts to grow… with its roots gradually enveloping the living tree and living off it as a parasite. Eventually the fig roots reach the ground and the original tree is fully surrounded and gradually dies.
Sometimes our thoughts, and emotions are like this strangler fig. They start with something that may be quite small and end up totally enveloping you. Things like anger, depression, anxiety, pain can envelop and overwhelm you until your real self is almost dead inside.
The thing is to step away from this… start to observe your thoughts and feelings and see them as just thoughts that are enveloping you. These are not anything real and substantial – only thoughts!
Avoid getting caught up in dramas – again they can be stepped away from.
You can start to become aware of these thoughts and dramas yourself and step away, but if they are too overwhelming give me a call on 1300 88 3646 because I can help you.
Yu can escape from anxiety
The elephant is something you don’t want to admit to, but it is always there. The wretched thing messes with your confidence and it needs to be acknowledged and loved.
My elephant is the consequences of thin bones. Now I have a very visible consequence - a walker which I find very embarrassing to admit to. I am fine walking around for short distances, but I need it for rough footpaths and longer distances.
As a child I was allergic to cows’ milk and my mother couldn’t feed me on wartime rations. I developed rickets and wore calipers to my waist until I was 5.
I can clearly remember aged 5, being in the front garden when a group of primary school boys walked past and laughed and jeered at “iron legs” then Mum telling me to go inside and never to let anyone see me. Do you think that did a lot for my self-confidence over the years? I’m okay with confidence now except around my elephant.
I still have thin bones and have broken vertebrae 4 times plus multiple ribs and I shattered an arm, so now I use the walker and keep strong by going to a personal trainer twice a week and walking my dog daily… that’s why I got her, although really I love her cuddles.
I have never let my physical issues limit me.
And sometimes foolishly, I don’t let on that I have limits. About 10 days after I had a double mastectomy to treat breast cancer I was working at a client’s chemical factory when I was asked to climb a ladder up the outside of a large building.
I had not told the client I had a major illness and surgery, that was also an elephant. I used to keep a zoo full of these elephants in the room. I was supposed to be resting at home and not doing anything strenuous.
Never let anyone see my weakness was what I had learned aged 5.
Shortly after that I started retraining so that I could change my life to one where I travelled less and became less physically active. I realised I had lived with PTSD for most of my life since my early childhood under a war. And that had been compounded over the years by bullying and three abusive marriages.
I retrained first in NLP then Hypnotherapy plus a lot of shorter mental health, psychotherapy and trauma courses.
Most importantly I discovered how to heal myself and to let those deep memories go. Some things can’t be unseen and unheard, but you can let the pain go.
Anxiety and fear are not your fault…
…but it is YOUR responsibility to heal.
While I was working as a quality systems consultant, I learned that I am very good at discovering the root causes of problems and putting in systems so that they don’t keep happening.
I’m also good at teaching others to do this. This transfers directly from working with businesses to working with clients with problems, which is the basis of what I do now and what I did to heal myself.
What are your deep issues? Do you know why they are a problem; do they still harm you?
If you need help please contact me. I would love to help you access and resolve your deep stressful and traumatic memories so that you become the stronger and wiser person you were meant to be.
I have turned what I did to help me recover into a simple step by step process you can either do with me face to face or by using my online Escape from Anxiety program.
OH, and until Sept 25th if you type OOPS into the coupon space you will get this for half price because I made a typing error on my website. It costs a whole lot less. Only $28.50 a month for 10 months or $235 if you pay up front. To get this price, you must use the word OOPS as a coupon and sign up before 5pm on Saturday 25th.
It is important to correct the typo I made on my website because far too many of us are suffering with underlying anxiety and fear. The thing is that the more we try to avoid fear and anxiety, the more toxic it becomes. It just eats away at us.
When we’re anxious or afraid, a physiological response gets triggered. This is not something we can just turn off. It is not a choice. We may slow this a bit by breathing out slowly, but our nervous system is built to protect us.Our hearts start pounding, our bodies secrete stress chemicals, digestion shuts down, and blood flows to our arms and legs so we can fight – or run away or we may just slow right down, even freeze and become depressed.
Over time, these physical changes damage our body.
Not only that . . .
Fear changes the brain.
The neurophysiology tells us that when we have the same thoughts and reactions over and over again, this becomes a habit.
We get into the habit of fear or worrying.
. . . and when our habits are shaped by fear, we get trapped in a pattern of anger, shame, and judgment.
As a result, our stress levels skyrocket, our relationships suffer, and anxiety abounds and we eventually get ill.
Disease is just that… Dis-ease
I get this. I had PTSD for most of my life. My ex-husband used to say that if I didn’t have something to worry about, I would worry about that. He was right…
… but what a change to the calm and cheerful person I am now.
That is why I created the very effective and cost-effective online course called “Escape from Anxiety”. There is a simple step by step process you work through at home in your own time and call me if you need extra help.
However, I made a crazy typo when I added a page to my website about my online courses. I typed in the $57 were weekly not monthly! The software would only have been charged you monthly but that it not what my website said.
SO let’s fix the OOPS
I am having a half price “I’m Sorry” sale. Until Saturday 25th September “Escape from Anxiety” and also my other course “Relax and Lose Weight” will both be half price. Cut from $57 per month or $460 up front cost to only $28.50 or $230 up front. All you need to do is type in “OOPS” in the coupon to get this discount.
Don’t go on living with the long Covid consequences of fear, anxiety and so often weight gain.
Let’s fix it.
Here are direct links to make it very easy… Just remember you need to type in OOPS to get the 50% price reduction.

We are going to go on living with the uncertainty of this wretched virus even when we reach 80% vaccination rate so it has never been more important to learn to release the underlying issues that make our daily challenges harder.
